A loan of $600 helped to buy manure, fertilizer, pesticide and herbicide to plan 7,000 square meters.

José Nelson's story

José is 42 years old and studied up to the fifth grade. He is married and his wife carries out the household chores. José has three children, of whom two are in school.

José works as a day laborer and also plants corn. The area that he harvests covers 7,000 square meters. With his children he works this land, which is 600 meters from his home.

His loan will be invested in the purchase of manure, fertilizer, pesticide and herbicide to plant on 7,000 square meters of land. His dream is for his children to stay in school and prepare themselves academically, to improve his and his family's living conditions, and to own livestock.
